The IT and AV equipment in every IT and Library supported room is important to lecturers and students alike, whether it's a 300 seat lecture theatre or a seminar room for only a handful.

Please note the following important changes that have occured to podium / teaching PCs.

1. The guest / Visitor account has been removed from all podium PCs.  The use of this local account had been abused and caused several security issues. In line with univesity information securty poilicies the decision was taken to remove this account, and return to a system requiring all users to use university credentials. Please contact the IT Service Desk for more information if you require it 

2. The "Switch User" option previously available on podum PCs has also been withdrawn. This option was implemented when a previous user left themselves logged in and a reboot of the computer was a time consuming affair. All podium PCs are now configuured with high spec processors, memory and disk drives meaning a PC can be rebooted in under a minute.

Please be polite and security conscious and remember to always log out of the computer when you have finished teaching.

3. The Microsoft Outlook application will be removed from podium PCs and replaced with a shortcut which will launch the web based Outlook interface. This will stop the local Outlook client from attempting to download all your email to the computer, slowing it down in the process.

4. Due to hygiene concerns, all radio microphones (those stored in the microphone safes or changing docks on teaching podiums and those usually available from the IT Service Desk on request) have been withdrawn from service until further notice. 

Fixed microphones for voice reinforcement (and recording) are still available in all lecture theatres
